The Northwest Credit Union Association is encouraging member credit unions to submit their nominations for the 2019 MAXX Awards gala, to be held Oct. 17 in Spokane. 

The deadline to nominate is June 25. Each year, credit unions and their team members make positive changes in the lives of others, and we come together each fall to celebrate those achievements.

Leap Awards

The  LEAP awards  recognize the positive impacts Micro-Communities are making across the Northwest. Their efforts reverberate far and wide, which is why these awards have four categories: 

  • Leadership 
  • Education 
  • Advocacy 
  • Philosophy in Action 

Nominations will be accepted  for all four categories, as well as for a fifth category, which goes to a Micro-Community that exemplifies all four of the LEAP pillars. Any Northwest credit union Micro-Community can be nominated for any of the five awards. Those groups include credit union chapters, young professional networking groups, Credit Union Development Educators, and sister societies of the Northwest Chapter of the Global Women’s Leadership Network. 

This year’s MAXX Annual Convention will be held Oct. 15-17 in Spokane. Register today! MAXX is the largest credit union event of its kind in the Northwest. Connect and network with your peers, hear from expert speakers, and celebrate the Credit Union Movement together.
